We visit Ballater every February and always finish our week off with a visit to this restaurant. The service and atmosphere are really good and the food excellent. Despite it often being really busy (as we go on a Friday night), we never have to wait too long for the food and it is always top notch. Well worth a... More

Very very tasty food!! Cost was £50 for two people which included two starters, sides, two mains and two beers. So fairly reasonable! Great atmosphere - recommend to anyone who enjoys a good curry!

We tired this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend and also from the reviews on trip advisor. We weren't disappointed my wife had the monkfish to start and I had the scallops, both were succulent, and juicy and they were cooked in just the right about of herbs and spices which were not over powering for such a delicate...

My boyfriend and I have eaten here a few times when in Ballater. Although the restaurant may not look like much from the outside, the food is really tasty and the staff are very polite and attentive. Both of us have always enjoyed our meals when eating here. Good quality indian food that we would recommend.

Really enjoyed a meal here recently. Wife and I had meals from the "specials" section of the menu recommended by the waiter, which was some of the best Indian food we have had in a long time. Very enjoyable indeed. My 2 kids went for the old favorites, tika masala, which did seem a little over sweet but they enjoyed... More

I had mussels to start and lamb shank main course. In fact all the group had great food. The restaurant has changed internally since my last visit... More
